Last month, two new electric vehicle (EV) charging stations were opened to the public thanks to the partnership between Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC) and Meralco.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Where are the two new charging stations located?

    The two new charging stations are located at Robinsons Galleria-Ortigas’ parking area.
  • Will RLC open more EV charging stations in the future?

    RLC confirmed its plans to open eBike charging stations at Robinsons Magnolia and charging stations for four-wheeled EVs and PHEVs at Robinsons Tagaytay.
  • The EV charging stations have been installed at Robinsons Galleria-Ortigas’ parking area. The charging area features pods that can accommodate two-wheeled, three-wheeled, and four-wheeled battery electric vehicles (BEV) and plug-in electric vehicles (PHEV).

    Meralco’s end-to-end EV solutions provider, eSakay, installed the charging stations.

    “Our strategic collaboration with Robinsons Land Corporation to build EV charging stations in Robinsons Malls underscores eSakay's continuing commitment to promote the country's important transition to electrified transport. This is all geared towards enabling our clients to enhance their operations while advancing their sustainability agenda,” said Meralco’s Chief Sustainability Officer (CSO) and eSakay President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Raymond Ravelo.

    This push for sustainability goes beyond the use of EV. Through Meralco, the real estate company collaborated with Spectrum, Meralco’s solar subsidiary that provides intelligent solar solutions, to provide its malls with a renewable energy source.

    RLC is currently the country’s largest solar-powered mall operator, with solar rooftop installations in 24 Robinsons Malls generating a total capacity of over 30 megawatts (MW) of clean energy, helping reduce carbon emissions and fossil fuel-based electricity.

    “Driving game-changing sustainability programs is an important priority for RLC. This imperative is fully aligned with the rising call for environmental conservation and efficient use of resources to help cushion the adverse effects of climate change,” said RLC Executive Vice President Faraday Go.
